It is often called “Predestination”- The belief that certain people have been marked or set aside, by God to receive salvation. Let’s look at predestination from this prospective: First off- God is Sovereign Genesis 1:1, meaning He has complete authority. Second- God is Omnipresent Psalms 139:1-12, meaning He can be everywhere at once, though He does have His “Shekinah Glory” in heaven, which is His being. Thirdly- He is Omnipotent Revelation 19:6, meaning He is all powerful, and His ability is without end. Lastly- He is Omniscient Job 37:16, meaning that He has all knowledge and without Him, no knowledge exists.
So, in all the grand power of our God, it is of little wonder that He already knew from the beginning of time the individuals who would choose Him, and those He would choose. God will not be surprised about who’s going to go to heaven. He knows that some people, no matter how long suffering He was with them, that they would never choose Him. To this point, I refer to it as “pre-determination”, because it was determined that these individuals would choose their own way no matter what. Therefore, He has predestined and equipped the elect the opportunity to receive salvation and eternal life in the coming regeneration.
